This year, schools are on track to run more than 200 farmers markets at their schools, most of them run by 5th graders. Many of these schools are in low income neighborhoods where there’s no fresh food for miles. So now we have 5th graders helping provide fresh produce for their community.

Can we get this going locally in Carbondale and the Metro East? It’s about having gardens at schools that kids can work, learn and build community.
